ADP | Episode 8.0 | Alan Newell McCarty


Episode 8.0. In which my last remaining Uncle, Alan Newell McCarty comes to visit and tell stories. When I was a kid, we knew him as Alan, but at some point in his adult life, he decided to go by Newell. Alan is 67 and my father’s youngest brother. We lost the middle child some years back.

This is a long one; over three hours. We’re Irish so we’ll talk about anything. God, politics, the environment, the afterlife and of course, the Irish. But then we also spent a lot of time talking about his life. I was really going to edit it, but since so much of it is a retelling of his life, from childhood on, I decided not to…for posterity.

We were getting a little warm in the studio after awhile, so at some point I opened the window, so there’s a lot of road noise. Deal with it. Also, there might be one point where leave Alan talking and go freshen up my drink. Oh, and we might have been drinking. Just a wee bit.

So sit back and enjoy some Irish storytelling. Mostly Alan telling stories, and my mostly interrupting.

Three hours is a long time for me to sit quietly.

I’m a writer, director, photographer, cinematographer and art director. A little bit of everything, all rolled into one. I’m a creative guy so it’s not unusual to be a bit of a crank and particular about….well, everything. I’m a professed slacker with a pension for excessive creative output.
